In case you missed them, here are some teachable moments from the past seven days:

▪ The Rio de Janeiro Olympics may be the first to require a surgeon general’s warning.

▪ Regarding their coaching staff, the Kings are now just flipping coins.

▪ The Warriors are beatable, just not twice in a row.

▪ There’s no place like home for the Suns, nor should there be a home like that for any team.

▪ A 500-mile race can come down to the last two feet.
